You’ve probably seen The Ten Commandments, that grand old movie where Charlton Heston is Moses, and he leads the Exodus out of Egypt and across the Red Sea. Hollywood may have taken a few liberties with it, but is the tale based on actual history?
There’s no better source of information than Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. He just posted this at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Patterns of Evidence: The Red Sea Miracle Coming to Theaters February 18. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Did Moses really lead the children of Israel across the Red Sea? Did God miraculously part the waters of the sea and save them from their enemies? Or, as many liberal scholars would argue [They’re all fools!], is this account just a fabrication or an exaggerated retelling of a much less exciting historical event?
Well, dear reader, is the Exodus tale mythology, or is it The Truth™? Hambo says:
Discover the truth in a brand-new two-part documentary in the Patterns of Evidence film series. Part 1 is coming to theaters across the United States for one night only, February 18.
Ooooooooooooh! You don’t want to miss that, dear reader. It’s recommended by ol’ Hambo himself, so you know it’s good. Then he tells us:
This powerful and challenging film begins the investigation into the Red Sea crossing — where was it? Did it happen? How many Israelites left Israel? [Doesn’t he mean “left Egypt”?] Where was Mount Sinai? [Probably not in Kentucky.] Did the Red Sea actually split? Do these kinds of miracles happen? And, was there any evidence left behind?
That’s a lotta questions. And the movie answers them all! Hambo continues:
Don’t miss Patterns of Evidence: The Red Sea Miracle Part I, in US theaters one night only. Order your tickets today to avoid disappointment as it may sell out. Be sure also to mark your calendar for the exciting conclusion to the intriguing investigation, which will be detailed in Patterns of Evidence: The Red Sea Miracle Part II, coming to US theaters one night only, May 5, 2020.
Wowie — a second movie! This is more than we ever dreamed of! And even that’s not all! Let’s read on:
If you haven’t seen the first two excellent documentaries in this series, Patterns of Evidence: Exodus and Patterns of Evidence: The Moses Controversy, I encourage you to watch them before this newest installment comes to theaters. They are fascinating and a helpful background to the information given in this upcoming film. You can find them available for sale at our online store.
You can get both of those earlier films for a total of only $24.99. What a bargain! We wrote about them 9 months ago, when they were being touted by ICR — see Who Wrote the Bible? ICR Knows!
Hambo ends his post with this:
